It is looking for the _ login username_. For example, when you installed
you entered your name and username in this panel:


If you used basil, enter that. However keep in mind that the username is
case sensitive, so if you entered it in all-caps (BASIL) as you have
above, you will need to enter it that way for the login as well.
